It's going to be big, probably 1 11/16 or 1/3/4 and that will put you into a 3/4" drive socket.

The parts detail online shows a nut above the pan you may need to hold. looks like the pan/blade assembly drops off the spindle on the gearbox for access.

I use an impact socket with an air impact wrench on my woods.

I just replaced the blades on my mower, but I'm not sure what brand it is. Anyhow, it took a 4-1 torque multiplier and about 4 feet of pull handle, with my 200 pounds pushing braced against my waist, to get one of the nuts off.
They might be tight!
If you have trouble getting 'em off, ya might try blocking up the rear of the mower and using a hand grinder.

Exactly what I do each time I use the cutter. I got a cheap 4 1/2 inch grinder .... I lift the deck on the tractor and sharpen off the edges from the rear of the machine while sitting on a repair stool. Takes less than five minutes.
